I have been to this La Mar at least a dozen times and the one in Miami twice. This was the worst experience I’ve had. I didn’t realize that my reservation confirmation said bar area - I would have not gone . My group of 6 was seated at the worst table- right next to a continuously opening door letting cold air in. The waiter was inattentive and the food was off. So much for being an OT VIP and repeat customer. Not likely to return

My options for reservation were bar and counter so I chose bar. We got stuffed in a dark back corner of the bar area that didn’t have enough chairs for the 3 of us. Was a disappointing first time at La Mar but the food was good.

The food is good and the service is great. It just is really overpriced for what you are actually getting. Its one of those meals where you spend 300 dollars (without drinks) for 5 people, and then are still hungry and need to eat elsewhere afterwards.

Great restaurant with a nice view off the pier if you get a table outside. Will start out quiet but noise will pickup as lunch hour continues. Parking nearby can be a pain though.

Fantastic place to have a special brunch with that special someone. Food was great, especially the cebiche. The team was kind enough to give us a cake to celebrate my SO’s birthday. Very memorable experience

We visited La Mar vor dinner on January 1st and that was the perfect start into the New Year! To celebrate the new year we had the Experiencia La Mar - and the food was just wonderful! Great taste, wonderful presentation. We also did the wine pairing with some really good pairings. We loved the Peruvian INTIPALKA with the cebiches, had a good rose wine and desert wine. We did not like the Red Wine pairing so much, but that is probably just a matter of individual taste.
Check-in and service during the first two courses was excellent, also the sommelier's visits. After the restaurant had filled up, service got a little less perfect but was still ok.
This is not the perfect restaurant for a romantic date night, as there is not a lot romantic about the atmosphere, but definitely worth a visit for great food, good service and a fun night out.
All in all we had a wonderful dining experience and will definitely come back!

The chips that accompanied the meal fall way short of the variety and freshness that once made me think, “ah, Peru!”. The monochromatic chips served could have come out of a bag.

The courses served were quite good, but a little pricey for street food

The fixed menu for NYE was good but uneven and not great. Service was excellent, especially given it was a busy night. La Mar is typically better than the fare served for NYE. Go somewhere else next year for NYE...

La Mar is one of my favorite restaurants in the City. It consistently has some of the best Peruvian food I've had anywhere. I especially recommend the causas limeñas and the mosto verde sours; the executive lunch is a good value.

We always look forward to an evening at La Mar and often choose this restaurant for double dates and celebrations. Everything about the experience is always stellar. We had a non-shellfish eater with us and I have celiac disease and so must avoid anything with gluten, and we had no problem finding plenty of dishes to share. I highly recommend La Mar.

Trendy and casual-elegant place in SF for Peruvian food.
The food is very good (specially the anticuchos, empanadas, and ceviches). Also, the place has a very extensive wine and cocktail list. Despite the location, its the kind of place were you can see more locals vs. turists.

One of the best restaurants in the city for sure. Great ceviche. Also the seafood plate was awesome (fish sausage was really good). Highlight also for the Maracuya Choco desert, for sure a must

Service always attentive despite the challenges of a large group. Ceviche is excellent. We enjoy the variety of seafood dishes. My wife though loves their lomo saltado. Cocktails are great. And the mocktails are good too.

We had a late dinner at LaMar. We elected to sit outside under tent near heaters for the view but the tent wall at base was about 10” high so cold air came in. We kept jackets on during dinner even w/heat lamps on.
The food at La Mar is very good but priced very high given the portions. We shared 4 main courses and 1 empanada sampler so all 5 diners got basically a sample. The Pisco Sours are good but not worth the cost. So overall, very good food, good drinks but somewhat overpriced. Our waiter was great and engaging.

The food is so fresh and a lot of choices that you can’t find elsewhere. Our server, Enrique, is great- he made the evening that much more pleasurable. Views from restaurant are nice- it was evening so we could see the Bay Bridge all lit up which is nice.
